(T/N: TRIGGER WARNINGS AT NOTES AT THE END)
Qin Kaiyi kept falling, falling, falling, as if falling into an endless hell. His whole body was shrouded in blue light, and his face was deathly pale because of the insect in his abdomen. He lifted his head and looked at the sky distancing itself farther and farther away from him; his mind was full of chaotic memories and bewildering voices. Shen Feixiao’s indifferent face seemed to still be in front of his eyes. The endless fall exhausted Qin Kaiyi’s last bit of energy, and he finally slowly closed his eyes. He sunk into a long sleep without end.
The biting cold of winter.
Pure white snowflakes fell gracefully from the sky, spreading a silver coat over the wasteland.
A long ravine in the center of the wasteland revealed a faint blue light. The light appeared and disappeared like a ghost in the dark night, making people feel shiver upon seeing it.
When a cold snowflake fell on the tips of Qin Kaiyi’s hair, he finally woke up from a long sleep. The turbulent blood in his heart rendered him unable to refrain from cursing out: “Shen Feixiao you son of a b*tch… f*ck your uncle.”
“This plot is too distorted.” After waking up, Qin Kaiyi began to observe his situation. He found that he was trapped by the chains formed by blue light. Let alone leave, just putting a bit of distance between him and the formation would be very difficult.
Although Qin Kaiyi’s heart sank to the pit of his stomach when he saw this scene, the system sound he heard when he woke up gave him a little comfort. [System Prompt: Completed Qin Shi’s sealing plot in advance; obtained 10% return. Double the reward for entering the later part of the plot, the current return value is 75%; completed Qin Shi’s sealing plot in advance; obtained 10% return. Double the reward for entering the later part of the plot, the current return value is 75%]
In fact, Qin Kaiyi discovered that the more he advanced into the later part of the novel, the higher the return value he would receive. Especially after entering the postponed plot, Qin Kaiyi guessed that he could complete one or two more tasks and return.
But in his memory, he only wrote that Qin Shi was sealed. He didn’t have the opportunity to write the subsequent plot, because after he wrote this scene, he was dragged into this world by a hand reaching from his computer.
Therefore, Qin Kaiyi did not know how events would play out later. But the problem he most worried about now… was obviously the Shen Feixiao who had been heavily offended by himself.
Qin Kaiyi knew that he didn’t need to eat, but not having to eat did not mean that he could live well in such a harsh environment. Because his demonic energy was sealed, his body could no longer resist the cold. Although it didn’t die, this cold feeling was really uncomfortable, and now… it began to snow again.
Qin Kaiyi gave a bitter chuckle. He had to sigh deeply at his extremely bad luck.
“It would be nice if Yan Gu was here.” Qin Kaiyi, trapped in the formation, leaned quietly against the rock wall. In fact, he really wanted to sit down and rest for a while, but when he found out that the ground was actually cooler, he gave up this sort of thinking. “Although he wasn’t reliable, at least there was someone to talk to…”
He didn’t feel the passing of time when in seclusion, but now he finally discovered how slow time passed. This kind of time that seemed to have no end made Qin Kaiyi inexplicably feel dread. Although he didn’t know how long Shen Feixiao intended to imprison him, he did know Shen Feixiao could imprison him for as long as he wanted.
Time finally froze in Qin Kaiyi’s world. He lifted his head to look up at the hazy sky, and used the tip of his tongue to lick a cold snowflake that had fallen to the side of his mouth.
Shen Feixiao came to the demon-subduing array and saw such a scene. The shixiong who had woken up at some unknown time was expressionlessly leaning against the rock wall that was covered in overgrown wilderness. His incomparably sickly paleness contrasted against the red lotus patterns on his face, making him appear extremely frail. He wore white clothes with a red changshan (T/N: long men’s traditional Chinese gown). His originally handsome, clear, fresh and elegant manner fiercely transmuted into a kind of confusing charm.
When he saw Qin Kaiyi sticking out the tip of his tongue and licking a snowflake at the corner of his mouth, Shen Feixiao’s expression finally moved. A cold smile overflowed in his densely purple eyes, and his lips also curved into a smile.
So much, so much, after spending so much time, he finally held his favorite in his hands.
Shen Feixiao walked in front of Qin Kaiyi with a few steps. He gazed at Qin Kaiyi in front of him with a tender expression that caused Qin Kaiyi’s hair to stand on end.
“… Shen Feixiao.” Although the demonic qi in the body was suppressed, Qin Kaiyi was still very sensitive to the breath of people who came close to him. When Shen Feixiao walked in front of him, he opened his eyes.
“Shixiong,” Shen Feixiao saw Qin Kaiyi open his eyes and called out softly.
“…” Qin Kaiyi’s expression was very complicated when he saw Shen Feixiao. He knew that it was definitely not a good thing for Shen Feixiao to come to him at this time.
“How are you these days?” Shen Feixiao’s tone was calm, and he seemed to care little about the irreversible state of his relationship with Qin Kaiyi.
“Not bad.” Qin Kaiyi smiled sarcastically. “What do you want?”
“I have always been wondering why you do this.” Without answering Qin Kaiyi’s question, Shen Feixiao walked slowly towards Qin Kaiyi, gently holding Qin Kaiyi’s chin with his hand. “Why you hate me so much, but at the same time help me at any cost.”
Qin Kaiyi wanted to get rid of Shen Feixiao’s hand, but he still refrained. He knew it was not the time to lose his temper. If he really provoked Shen Feixiao to anger, he would still be the one to suffer a calamity.
“Why can you kick me off the cliff with one foot, and why can you jump into the magma to save me regardless of perils?” Saying this much, Shen Feixiao shook his head slightly. He then gave a long sigh, “But now that we have gotten to this point, I don’t care anymore. “
“… Shen Feixiao, are you crazy.” Qin Kaiyi’s expression was a bit ugly. He found that Shen Feixiao’s heart demon was really serious. That kind of smile which held unbounded evil intent made him have the illusion that he would meet with a great disaster…
“Shixiong why do you ask such a thing?” Shen Feixiao heard Qin Kaiyi’s question, and the smile on his face disappeared instantly. He held Qin Kaiyi’s chin with more and more force, as if he wanted to crush it.
“Let me go!” The pain made Qin Kaiyi involuntarily want to open Shen Feixiao’s hand, but he was grasped by Shen Feixiao while trying to shake him off.
“But I remember very clearly when shixiong slapped me in the face last time.” Shen Feixiao’s eyes became colder and colder, and he no longer controlled the strength in the hand holding Qin Kaiyi.
“Ah!” That feeling like his wrist would be pinched to pieces made Qin Kaiyi scream. There was no way out; as long as he was in this formation, he had no chance to fight back.
“Hehe.” Looking at Qin Kaiyi’s unbearably pained look, Shen Feixiao lightly laughed once. He let go of Qin Kaiyi’s wrist, and then embraced Qin Kaiyi’s waist without hesitation.
Qin Kaiyi’s waist was very thin. If one only looked at it from the outside, he completely wouldn’t be able to tell that Qin Kaiyi’s waist felt so good to the touch.
“Shixiong, have you been touched by someone else?” Shen Feixiao was slightly taller than Qin Kaiyi, so it didn’t seem out of place when he held Qin Kaiyi. He used one hand to hold Qin Kaiyi’s waist, while his other pinched his chin, forcing Qin Kaiyi to look at him, then asking the question that had always been bothering him.
“…” Although Qin Kaiyi was a homebody otaku, he was not dull enough to still not understand Shen Feixiao’s meaning. Before, Shen Feixiao gave him a wake-up call when he forcibly kissed him. Now Shen Feixiao’s question clearly illustrated the cruel reality.
“What nonsense are you saying, Shen Feixiao, I am your shixiong!!!” Qin Kaiyi was unable to struggle under Shen Feixiao’s restraint. He wanted to push Shen Feixiao away, but found that he didn’t have the strength at all.
“… No one has touched?” His thumb gently rubbed Qin Kaiyi’s lips, and Shen Feixiao whispered softly, “That Le Dong has touched shixiong’s waist right? But he’s already dead, and that Wei He… in addition, Ziyang Pei, have they touched you, shixiong?”
“What the hell kind of nonsense are you talking about, Shen Feixiao you madman!!” Qin Kaiyi had a bad hunch.
“Everyone who has touched shixiong must die.” Shen Feixiao’s appearance was originally good, and when he smiled brightly it could light up someone’s vision even more. But it was just this kind of smile that made Qin Kaiyi feel like all the blood in his body had frozen.
Qin Kaiyi knew that what Shen Feixiao said was not a joke—he was serious.
“… Hey.” Qin Kaiyi’s whole person was dazed. He completely didn’t understand why things developed like this, let alone why Shen Feixiao would have such distorted feelings for himself.
“Don’t be afraid, I won’t hurt shixiong.” The hand holding Qin Kaiyi’s waist used more and more force, as if to wring to break. Shen Feixiao let go of the hand holding Qin Kaiyi’s chin, and turned his head to bury it in Qin Kaiyi’s neck.
“…” Qin Kaiyi suddenly gave birth to the impulse to smash things and roar. Who would come to tell him what was wrong with this plot!!! What the hell was wrong with it!!!! (T/N: he uses 肿么了, sounds like zhong me le, instead of 怎么了, which sounds like zěn me le. Internet slang. Zhong means swollen).
“Shen Feixiao, you calm down a bit,” Qin Kaiyi said weakly. “I am your shixiong ah.”
“I know ah.” Shen Feixiao’s smile was as bright as a cherry tree growing luxuriantly from the nutrients of a buried body. “How could I not know.”
Qin Kaiyi’s face froze. He felt a cool hand slide down his collar to his chest. He gasped a little, and then ruthlessly raised his foot to kick at Shen Feixiao.
This kind of slow movement was naturally easily avoided by Shen Feixiao. He looked at Qin Kaiyi, who was so frightened that it became visible on his face. Shen Feixiao lowered his eyelids and said lightly, “Since shixiong is so afraid, I will help shixiong.”
“You get lost!!!” Hearing these words, Qin Kaiyi finally completely emotionally collapsed. He didn’t know where the strength came from, but he actually managed to struggle from Shen Feixiao’s arms. He fell to a sitting position on the ground and, ignoring everything, crawled in another direction. But before he could climb the span of two steps, his feet were caught in Shen Feixiao’s hands.
That gloomy-faced man at this time had an expression that was wholly intoxicated. He grabbed Qin Kaiyi’s feet and pulled him back bit by bit. “Shixiong, don’t be afraid.” I will make you fall in love with this feeling.
